Proportional Directional Control Valves

Content

Improving Performance and Accuracy

Standard directional proportional valves are perfect for many hydraulics applications. There are low cost designs without spool feedback for manual and open loop control applications. These can be direct or pilot operated. General purpose valves have better axis performance and accuracy, and Rexroth has implemented valve design improvements that have reduced cost. Consequently, these standard proportional directional valves work well in many closed loop applications.
